Technology and media businesses combine capability to create a new global automotive platform for the collectable car market.
NEC Birmingham, UK & Charlotte, North Carolina, USA – January 10, 2019 – Motorsport Network and Speed Digital today brought their respective market positions and digital expertise to bear on a new collaboration – Motorious.com.
Motorious.com aims to become the leading international car collector digital platform, launching with a start-up inventory of over 50,000 cars for sale. The marketplace features all premium automotive segments including classics, sports, exotics and muscle cars, as well as off-road vehicles and hot rods. The platform will be enriched with Speed Digital’s buying guides, research information and editorial content from the Motor1, MotorGT and AutoClassics stables to provide automotive enthusiasts and collectors with an ‘all-in-one-place’ solution.
Motorious.com will initially target North American and European markets with a progressive roll-out of ten language editions across multiple territories to deliver a genuinely worldwide solution for the collectable car market. Sellers will also benefit from proprietary software solutions that syndicate sales listings to other reputable sites dedicated to this market.

With our joint capabilities, we are using technology to create an easy-to-use platform for research, market information, for sale listings and interesting content for car collectors, enthusiasts and professionals. Over time, we hope to make Motorious.com the ‘go-to’ destination for everything collector-car related,” said Kauffman.
Zak Brown, Motorsport Network’s Chairman said, “Motorsport Network has a strong tradition of internationalising its digital platforms and currently operates in 81 markets and 17 languages.
